Convicted murderess Jodi Arias was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole Monday, seven years after Travis Alexander was killed in his Arizona home. But there’s still someone who thinks Arias is a victim: her mother Sandy.
“I do think she's a victim," Sandy Arias said, according to KTAR, Phoenix. "As her mother, I feel like I should have been there to protect her, but I wasn't." Sandy Arias said Alexander was a “mistake,” and Arias’ family spotted bruises on her before the murder.
The “Jodi Arias Is Innocent” webpage still plans to get “justice” for Arias and called Monday’s decision the “biggest and most comprehensive judicial f--- up in Arizona history.”
“And just to clarify my earlier point again: There was never a ‘victim’ in this case. There was a potential victim [Jodi], and there was her abusive good-for-nothing POS pedophile attacker [TA]. One of them is dead [due to their antics], and the other one is not … and that’s the way it’s gonna stay.”
During her testimony two years ago, one of the things Arias, 34, said was she saw Alexander looking at pictures of young boys, and he asked her to wear boys’ underwear.
“I had to fight for my life!” Arias said at the sentencing hearing Monday. “I kept his skeletons in the closet all to my own detriment for years.”
After she claimed -- yet again -- she killed Alexander in self-defense, she described the alleged abuse that took place during his childhood and in their relationship. “Maybe I wasn’t as badly abused as Travis and his siblings were by his parents,” she said. “I didn’t consider being beaten and hit abuse. That was discipline in my family. … I understand now that was abuse. “For [Travis’ sister] Samantha to say that I was not a victim of abuse is wrong.”
Arias has 20 days to file an appeal.
